Although having genetic factors or derivative, a person will not be affected by varicose veins if there is no triggers or precipitating factors of varicose veins. 
varicose veins
The triggering or precipitating factors are:
a. Obesity
People who are obese or overweight have the higher risk of developing varicose veins than those who are not. That's because obese people are less mobile and lazy to exercise, so the veins are less able to pump blood optimally. As a result, the overall blood flow is not smooth, and there are clotting and swelling of blood vessels. Diabetes and cholesterol that are closely related to obesity and circulatory problems also result in varicose veins.
b. Too Long Sitting or Standing
Sitting for long periods means automatically reduced activity. Moreover, if the legs are bent while sitting, the blood vessels become less smooth. Likewise, when standing too long, the legs work too hard to sustain the weight, so that the veins will be too hard to drain the blood. Too long standing also cause muscle tension, so that the blood circulation is less smooth. Moreover, in a standing position, gravity causes blood tends to flow down. We need strong blood vessels to pump blood from the legs to the heart. But if not, the blood cannot flow properly and varicose veins arise in places where blood circulation is retained.
c. Hormonal
Varicose veins can also occur due to hormonal factor, for example, in pregnant women. Increasing levels of progesterone and estrogen, plus weight gain during pregnancy will burden on foot, causing blood flow from the feet, legs, groin and lower abdomen is inhibited. It also happens in women taking hormonal drugs, such as birth control pills. They also have higher risk for varicose veins.
d. Smoking
Smoking can lead to varicose veins, because cigarettes contain harmful substances that cause blood vessels stiff and narrow, so the blood vessels are inelastic.
e. Suffering from Certain Diseases
Suffering from certain diseases, such as high cholesterol and diabetes, also cause blood circulatory problems, blood vessel disorders and obesity, which lead to varicose veins.
f. Often Wearing High Heels
Wearing too high shoes can make the heel muscle movement that helps the blood vessels work to be not optimal. As a result, the work of blood vessels is also heavier and it stimulates blood retained on the specific part that causes varicose veins.
g. Flat Foot 
Flat Foot is a foot deformity that has no curvature in the soles of the feet (ARCHUS). In someone who has flat foot, when walking the legs will support the body too hard, so that the blood vessels are going to work extra hard when there is a heavy emphasis on the the foot. This is what causes varicose veins in people with flat foot abnormalities.
